Lexington, KY - As opportunities continue to present themselves in the beef, small ruminant and wild game sectors, Alltech is pleased to announce several new team members and roles that will serve and support producers of these species in the U.S.

Nathan Pike joins Alltech as the beef technical manager and regional sales manager for the New Mexico region. Pike grew up on a small farm and cattle operation in Alabama. He attended Western Kentucky University for his undergraduate studies and then earned his master's degree in ruminant nutrition from Kansas State University. He joins Alltech with over 20 years of industry experience with Cargill.

Alltech regional sales manager Randy Asher will assume a new role as U.S. small ruminant and wild game species manager. He will provide national support to producers of this growing segment of the livestock market. Asher joined Alltech in 2016 with more than 20 years of experience as a consultant for producers, veterinarians, feed companies, feed additive manufacturers, research firms and vaccine companies.

Dr. Shelby Roberts will transition from her current role as a beef research scientist based at Alltech's headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky, to a new position focused on beef technical sales support based in Texas. Roberts joined Alltech in 2017 and has experience in both the cow/calf and feedlot sectors. She earned a degree in animal science at West Texas A&M University, a master's degree in ruminant nutrition from Oklahoma State University and a Ph.D. in agriculture with an emphasis in ruminant health and immunology from West Texas A&M University.

"Expanding our team and transitioning roles will allow these team members to share their wealth of knowledge and expertise with U.S. beef, small ruminant and wild game producers," said CJ Tanderup, western U.S. business manager for Alltech. "They will be key assets to Alltech."
